ShermansTravel experts do the legwork – literally – to walk you through the neighborhoods and regions in your destination. From local geography to notable landmarks to the hotel and restaurant meccas, we detail which areas to scope out during your stay and which spots aren’t worth the cab fare.

Mumbai Neighborhoods


Eye big name artists like M.F. Husain and newcomer Atul Dodiya at contemporary galleries, shop for embroidered moccasins at street stalls, and admire leftover British relics in this sophisticated South Mumbai district where architecture and culture intersect.

Nariman Point

Home to the city’s socialites, industrialists and bankers, this posh strip of South Mumbai’s skyline ranks among the city’s priciest real estate.

Breach Candy/Kemps Corner

Saunter through this central Mumbai neighborhood and stop in at staple department stores like Benzer and Amarsons for everything from cookbooks to sarees.

Malabar Hill/Napean Sea Road

Hail a cab to this quiet, tree-lined stretch nestled atop a hill for great views of Chowpatty Beach and the harbor.

Lower Parel/Worli

Mall culture, a relatively new phenomenon in Mumbai, is thriving in these highly commercial sections; recent additions also include a Hard Rock Café and Buddha Bar-inspired Asian lounge called Shiro.


Think cafés, creativity, and youth in this bustling suburban island of activity.

Juhu Beach

Catch a glimpse of Bollywood stars and starlets in this northern section of the city. While you’re there, try a bite of bhel puri, a snack of puffed rice seasoned with tangy chutneys that’s sold along the beach.
